Cuz I need to join.
They take up so much room. I was very tempted to jump on the Spellbinders train. I even bought a set from a friend who sold all of her stamping supplies. (That is happening at an alarming rate around me.) But, pulling out my Cuttlebug and dies and all of that is so much more difficult than just pulling out a punch!
I saw these punch ideas on Mercedes' blog. She has an eye for creating with her punches and I'll be checking in with her often for punch ideas! This set of cards was made for my Godchildren using some older Splitcoast sketches (68, 70 and 113). I find using sketches or challenges really jump starts my creativity.
My favorite is this little pilgrim girl. I wanted the card to be folksy so I added the buttons and gingham paper. I just love this card. It's recipient, Faith, is only one year old, but I think her mom will like it too. :-)
Thank you for stopping by today!
